Loggers deployed by my team conducting a Net Ecosystem Calcification 
(NEC) study on Dongsha Atoll recorded a 4 degree hike in SST between May 
9th and May 23rd on the east reef flat, and bleaching of massive 
Porites. They continue to track the event, both reef conditions and 
coral responses. More details and photos of the bleaching and our 
activities on Dongsha are blogged here: http://dongsha2014.blogspot.com/.
